Become a peace-builder in athens, greece

This summer, Sky School is running a new course in Athens, Greece. The course is called 'Peace-building in your Community' and is designed for young refugees who want to become peace-builders in their communities. 

The course explores ways you can build peace in your communities, through learning about issues relating to peace and exploring the reasons for conflicts on a local and global level. You will also devise and conduct an activity to contribute to building peace in your community.

The deadline to apply for this course has now passed. We will post details of other courses on this page.

Timings

The course starts in the week of June 25. 

Students meet in person for six hours per week, usually during two or three sessions. 

Duration

Both courses will run for ten weeks, and there will be a two week break in August.
